ICCA Yearbook Commercial Arbitration

Since 1976, the Yearbook Commercial Arbitration has been a major source of information concerning international arbitration jurisprudence. Published under the guidance of the General Editor, Professor Dr. van den Berg, and with the assistance of the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the Yearbook provides an annual update on key developments including: institutional and ad hoc arbitral awards, court decisions on arbitration from around the world, court decisions on major multilateral arbitration conventions, commentary on the court decisions on the New York Convention 1958, updates on developments in arbitration law and practice, an investment treaty awards and decisions digest and a bibliography of the latest texts.


What ?

This list contains over 35 years of judicial decisions on arbitration conventions as reported in the Yearbook Commercial Arbitration since Vol I (1976) to Vol XLI (2016).

It is particularly useful for people seeking an overview of the national environment for recognition and enforcement of arbitration agreements and awards pursuant to the various recognition and enforcement conventions.

The list is broken down into five sections:

  • Part V-A containing decisions applying the New York Convention of 1958;
  • Part V-B containing decisions applying the European Convention of 1961;
  • Part V-C containing decisions applying the Washington (ICSID) Convention of 1965;
  • Part V-D containing decisions applying the Panama Convention of 1975; and
  • Part V-E containing decisions which have been identified as important to the practice of arbitration.

It does not purport to be a comprehensive representation of all national court decisions on the relevant convention.

Scroll through to the relevant country you wish to research.

The decisions listed are  reported in the Yearbook Commercial Arbitration.
